A Community Impact Newspaper information request yielded an application filed by the company with the city.
The application shows that the property located at 2801 CR 172, Round Rock, is the proposed site for a new Amazon warehouse and distribution center. Additional details provided in the application state the structure will be at least 120 feet in height. The property is not located within Round Rock city limits, but does lie within the city's extraterritorial jurisdiction, and is a parcel of Robinson Ranch property.
Representatives of Kimley-Horn and Associates, a planning and design engineering firm involved with the project, declined to comment regarding the application.
Daniel Martin, Amazon regional public relations manager, also said the company would not comment on sites of future facilities.
“Amazon is a dynamic business, and we are constantly exploring new locations and weighing a variety of factors when deciding where to develop future sites to best serve our customers," he said in an email. "However, we have a policy of not commenting on our future roadmap.”
An email shared by the Greater Round Rock West Neighborhood Association states representatives from Amazon will discuss plans with area neighborhoods at an upcoming meeting.
Will Hampton, Round Rock communications and marketing director, confirmed information included in the email is accurate.
Brad Wiseman, Round Rock Planning and Development Services director, also confirmed the project involves Amazon and said the company held its first meeting with the nearby Chisholm Valley Neighborhood Association Oct. 11.
An Amazon delivery center opened in 2020 and is located in the northern part of the city at 3150 Chisholm Trail Road.
The zoning request has not yet been approved by the city of Round Rock.
